Given that it’s going on midnight, correct me if I’m wrong. According to my calculations, it will be 4 wins for the GOP and 2 for the fascists.
So jealous!!!! Open them and put the rest in a Ziploc and save them for next week and that recall! ;-)
Hopper won the 2008 general by 163 votes over Jessica King and had a messy divorce last year. Never good in an election like this.
There’s a light ... shining in the darkness ...
I think I love you.
Jerk should have resigned.
StuPolitics Stuart Rothenberg by SykesCharlie WI GOPers now predicting Darling victory. Very Red precincts in Waukesha Co still out.

Thanks Missy, now I need a beer and a spoonful of chocolate frosting. :-}
Did someone mention ‘chocolate’?
That would be too funny, but I don’t think I could stand another couple weeks in a windowless room at the courthouse watching people stare at ballots.
Off to bed
I’ll check back in in 5 hours.
I’d stay up but I was on days yesterday and have 6 mids in a row. I need a nap.
Later everybody. Go Darling!
You’re absolutely right. I must have a jar in the storage locker. Good, it’ll take me away from F5 for a few minutes.
I’m risking it and having my celebratory drink!!!!!!
With popcorn! :^D
Hopper is a goner. Oh well, he is a jerk anyway. Focus on Darling.
Chocolate! there’s a box of Almond Joys and another of Heath Bars on the safe! Oh, happy day!
I like FR being ahead. That way at 4:54am, FRtime, I am forced off to the shower early so I can wake up and come back and read the news a little bit more awake.
sorry gang....pmsnbc calling a win for king over harper....we’ve got one to hang on to.
That would be an interesting combo!
If it goes badly, we can call it our cry in our drink drink.
Well, the unions put $30 million into this night from out of state. I suspect that’s what they’ll do with Walker if they think it will help.
Hope his wife takes him to cleaners and leaves him homeless.
jsonline shows Darling falling further behind but everyone her keeps saying she is gaining votes!?
Your numbers are old and wrong. See post 558
just got here - anyone give me cumulative update ?
jus gop wins and dem wins ...
Rub it in! No chocolate in my house! :(
I have some chocolate tea though. Hmmm? :)
Did someone mention “beer”?
You’ve got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between
So, overall, it looks like a big win for the GOP tonight!
The unions unloaded all their big guns on us, and we survived. Their power in Wisconsin has been dramatically curtailed.

Washington 9/9 2,88727% 7,955 73%
Waukesha 1/11 200 34% 397 66%
This one is going to be close.
I understand why some folks chose not to vote for him and I don’t hold it against them. You are right, it is Hopper who deserves the to be tarred and feathered.
All precincts in, Hopper OUT.
3 Definite GOP wins...
1 Definite Dem win...
1 Strongly Likely Dem win...
1 race undecided...
I can tell you’re worried Kansas Girl, but the good news is it looks like Darling won, you’re looking at earlier numbers. That would be 4 seats to 2 for the GOP. Feel Better!
So can somebody update me on the Dem Recalls up next.
When is that recall election?
How many elections total?
How many D’s truly at risk—I hear Holperin is one...Anybody else..
3 GOP wins, 2 Dem wins, and 1 still not over that everyone keeps saying the GOP will win (even though everything I see shows us trailing in).

Can you get off Hopper’s back? The guy’s private life affected the race, but jeez. Too much hyperbole here. This place is becoming nuts. Do any of you realize how much money has been poured in here? Hopper won by a whisker last time and had no marital issues dogging him. Kapanke won luckily in a democrat district and Darling is in a tough district that isn’t easy for a Republican to win. So let’s just hope we win and skip taking shots at people?
Lol.. I turned on MSNBC... They are already getting worked up over Waukesha County.. I wanna see heads explode.
I sure wish I had some of those! If I were you, I’d dig on in!
shoulda kept it in his pants.
Nutella..straight. Chased by a few almond crackers. Gotta have some salt after my chocolate!
